I have no money for a new one but just got a warning from a cop for speeding (5mph over) and headlight out. I don't really have the money to replace it but can I get a ticket next time if I get pulled over for the headlight being out?

Usually, yea.
Try not driving around in the dark
And a headlight only costs about 8$. Just buy one at a store and replace it yourself.
Easy.

Yeah, you can get a ticket for it. Like someone said previously, you can get headlamps real cheap, i think they are like $5 for regular ones (i dont know the name) and like $8-$10 for a halogen bulb.

Usually they'l cite you, warn you, and say you have to have it fixed within a certain number of days. If you get pulled over again, you'll be ticketed.

All you need is the bulb... you should be able to take the whole light peice out and then unscrew the bulb from theb ack and put the new one in.

the smart thing to do is get two. if one's out, the other one should be going soon too (assuming you put them in around the same time)

it always seems to be the case. while youre out gettin headlamps, get your cars rear brake and or blinker lights too. theyre only 3 bucks and keep em in the glovebox. you dont want to be chiefin in the car and some hobag pulls you over because your cadles arent lit.
